*according to the grace of our :God and the Lord Jesus Christ.*

 *NOTE**: *Tribulation; Persecution; Suffering; Trials; Affliction: these
and others are all synonyms of blessing from God to perfect us the saints.
None of these are blessings at the time, but *afterwards* they bring forth
in us the fruit of righteousness, and enable us to pass God's test for His
Kingdom! We are *not* appointed to God's wrath; for that is reserved for
those who don't know God, and have rejected or ignored His way of salvation
in Jesus; of Whom He said - *“This is My beloved Son in Whom I am wellpleased!
Hear and Obey Him!” * The context here is between sheep and goats.

 Jesus patiently waits for the Father's timing to make His enemies His
footstool. Then - suddenly - His revelation from heaven will take place.

 What the Holy Spirit through Paul commenced in setting forth an
understanding and timing of Christ's Second coming in 1 Thessalonians,
*now*in 2 Thessalonians He intensifies these truths.

 And let us remember - with the Lord 1000 years is as a day - and a day as
1000 years. So from the time of Jesus on earth as our atoning and redeeming
Savior - until He returns as King of kings and Lord of lords - is but two
days - two blinks of the eye.

 How foolish for man to live apart from God in our very brief time down here
- when all eternity stretches before us. There is an old chorus with the
phrase, *“With eternity's values in view!” *- *this* is the way we all
should live - for soon is coming upon earth the wrap-up of all past
prophecies. Think of all the prophecies exactly fulfilled at Christ's First
Coming. It will be equally amazing to see all the prophecies about to be
fulfilled for His return!

 The majority of the human race rejects God, His Son and His Bible. The
Bible is *God's Word* to us through man. *No other* religious book comes
close to its authenticity! Ivan Panin with his discoveries in Bible Numerics
attests to this authenticity. Here God spells out *His* outlook on sexual
perversion and sin. It matters not what man does in setting His truth apart
today. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah. And take hold of 1:7-9 above - *“in
flaming fire, rendering vengeance to them that know not God, and to them
that obey not the gospel of our :Lord Jesus; 9 who shall suffer
punishment, eternal
destruction from the Lord's face and from the glory of his :might, 10 when
he shall come to be glorified in his :saints, and to be marveled at in all
that believed in that :day.”*

 Is this not a parallel to Sodom and Gomorrah? Be *not* deceived - God is *
not* mocked. What is recorded in His Word, inspired by God's Holy Spirit
through apostles and prophets, will *all* come to pass with the same
exactitude as the fulfilled prophecies at Christ's first coming. - J.A.W.
